Our clients say it best
  • After losing my 9 year old old English sheepdog this week to cancer I felt appropriate that I thank the wonderful staff at Aquavet for their care and expertise. I decided to take Missie to Aquavet after a referral from her vets after trying to maintain the pain in her arthritis. This is a condition that missie has endured even through her young years due to unnecessary docking. We had a session every fortnight for 3 years. The improvement was steady but certainly noticed ! Missie was not a confident dog in water but soon got to know and like the staff and dare I say even got to like her visits ! The staff made our trips good fun , informative and run perfectly ! I would 100% recommend the treatment and Aquavet. Thank you Aquavet. Will miss our sessions. –Rebecca Gunner

  • my rottie ruby did her cruciate and I can't thank the staff at aquavets enough for their wonderful care in getting her back to herself, their kindness and helpfulness was fantastic at such a distressing and worrying time with clear and helpful explanations and advice always given, well done to everyone. Ruby has had so much fun swimming that even though she is now better we continue to go for a weekly swim not only to maintain the benefits but because she thoroughly enjoys herself. I would highly recommend any dog owner to use such an excellent facility and team to care for their dog. –jayne jeune
